Kicking off a torrent of new laptops hitting the streets today, Razer has introduced its next generation Blade 15 laptops for gamers and prosumers. One of the core laptops within Razer's product portfolio, the new Blade 15 offers OLED or 240 Hz LCD display options, Intel’s latest six-core CPU, and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX graphics processors. The new gaming notebooks will clearly offer considerably better user experience than their predecessors due to improvements, but they will also be slightly bulkier than the Blade 15 machines launched last year.SteelSeries Launches The Arctis 9X Headset: X Marks The Xbox
SteelSeries is well-known in the gaming headset industry, and we’ve been fortunate enough to test out some of their products in the past, including the amazing Arctis Pro with GameDAC which is one of the best PC headsets around, but SteelSeries didn’t officially support Xbox with that model. That changes today, with the launch of the Arctis 9X, and brings with it official Xbox Wireless connectivity as well, which SteelSeries sent us a couple of weeks ago to get some first impressions on prior to the launch.
The addition of Xbox Wireless connectivity puts SteelSeries in some select company, and the expansion of this ecosystem to allow connectivity of not just controllers, but also headsets, is something only available since late 20...NVIDIA Launches GeForce GTX 1650: Budget Turing For $149, Available Today

This morning the company is rolling out its latest and cheapest GeForce Turing video card, the GeForce GTX 1650.

How Intel has launched its range of ninth generation processors has been an odd and awkward one.

That all changes today as the company is giving out a full list of processors, with availability soon to follow. There are still question marks about Intel’s ability to meet the new increased demand, so it will be interesting to see if Intel can still provide the lower frequency and lower core count hardware in volume.GlobalFoundries to Sell 300mm New York Fab to ON Semiconductor

LG V35 ThinQ receives Android Pie update in South Korea
Earlier this month, LG revealed plans to update four flagship smartphones to the latest version of Android all before June hits, but that's as specific as it got. We've just gotten word that the LG V35 ThinQ is currently being updated to Android Pie in LG's home market of South Korea. This means the global rollout shouldn't be too far behind. The LG V40, LG V30, and LG V30S are still due for updates. We'll let you know when we hear more about those. The LG V35 was a refresh of the LG V30 with an updated Snapdragon 845 CPU and more 50% more RAM.

Last month Xiaomi issued an official timeline for rolling out Android 9 Pie to some of its devices, and the Mi 6 was on the list, with a planned release of a beta Pie build in the second quarter of this year. Well, here we are in the second quarter, and unsurprisingly it's now out. Note that this is a beta, and as such is only a good idea to install on a phone that isn't your daily driver. You also need to be okay with the possible presence of bugs, things being broken, that sort of thing. For the general public, while this isn't useful per se, it's good as a confirmation that...Qualcomm and Samsung will supply Apple with 5G modems in 2020
Shortly after news broke about Intel exiting the 5G modem business, Apple was forced to settle with Qualcomm and use its chips for its future iPhones. But no one said anything about Samsung being the second supplier for the Cupertino-based company. According to a report from Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, the company will look for a second supplier and it will most likely be Samsung. This will give the company some leverage when negotiating prices and also lower its dependence on a single supplier. So in 2020, we can expect iPhones to ship with Qualcomm and Samsung chips. This also...Honor 8C now comes in Phantom Blue color

'Tootsie' on Broadway review: It won't let you down
First things first: A musical? About Tootsie? It has no business working as well as it does.
I mean, really. Who could have predicted this? A show-to-stage extravaganza, based on the beloved, Oscar-nominated 1982 comedy about a desperate, out-of-work actor who disguises himself as a woman because he thinks it'll be easier to get parts that way (HA), and winds up falling in love with a co-star and learning a few things along the way is one of those tales you'd be forgiven for thinking is best left in the past.
Happily, this thoroughly modern update is a genuine thrill, mostly thanks to Robert Horn's smart book, which excises a lot of the more cringe-y aspects on the original comedy, and instead invites audiences to laugh at Michael Dorse...'Avengers: Endgame' reviews praise an epic, emotional conclusion
Nothing will prepare you for Avengers: Endgame.
The culmination of over 10 years of MCU movies will release in a matter of days but until then, spoiler-free reviews of it are finally in.
Mashable's own Angie Han has dubbed it Marvel's biggest flex, and understandably so. It manages to wrap up with an immensely satisfying end.

The subtweet is coming from inside the house.
Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey was on the receiving end of a not-so-subtle own today following an April 23 Oval Office meeting with Donald Trump. It seems that Biz Stone, one of the company's original co-founders, doesn't think too highly of the CEO's justification for meeting with the President. And so, Stone did what many frustrated Twitter users do: he used the platform to make his displeasure known.

Avengers: Endgame is not the best Marvel movie ever made. It's not the prettiest or the funniest; it won't blow your mind with new ideas or complicated character development.
But it is the most Marvel movie ever made, and there's something incredible about that.
This is Marvel flexing, building on over 10 years and 20-plus films of careful groundwork and intricate planning to show us what it can do that no other movie franchise can. As such, it's an immensely satisfying finish to this era of the series.
Its magic does require some prior buy-in. This is a film designed for fans, stuffed as it is with callbacks, cameos, and Easter eggs. Certain arcs come full circle after years...Ford wants to build a better app store for cars
Last year Ford brought on the startup Autonomic to create the Transportation Mobility Cloud, or TMC, to build "smart" car applications for real-time data and connectivity in cars. On Tuesday, Ford announced Amazon Web Services will power the cloud-based platform.
The platform has since been available for all car makers, not just Ford. It creates a space for services and apps, like those used for parking, real-time traffic information, and in-car payment options. Think of it like the Apple App Store, but with apps and services made solely for the car.

A lot of viewers are feeling an exaggerated smiley-squint from Daenerys during her heart-to-heart stand-off with Sansa in the most recent Game of Thrones episode.
— doom (@reallyhalalfood) April 22, 2019
The Daenerys-Sansa exchange didn't get the same notice as, say, Brienne's knighthood or Daenerys' other big Stark one-on-one conversation, but it's pivotal all the same as it sets up a potential ongoing feud between the Mother of Dragons and, maybe, the Queen of the North.
Provided they survive the upcoming Battle of Winterfell, of course.
In the meantime, though, the moment got meme'd as Twitter user @reallyhalalfood called for a caption contest of the moment and, yes, Twitter delivered. Read...This influencer faked a weekend at Coachella with Photoshop and wigs
If you go to Coachella without taking pictures in front of the ferris wheel, did you really even go?
YouTuber Gabbie Hanna decided to do a little experiment in which she faked a weekend at Coachella using Photoshop and footage from friends who actually did go to the festival. With the help of some photographers and colorful wigs Hanna posted three very different (and very convincing) looks to Instagram.
The 28-year-old vlogger was inspired to pull off the stunt by other YouTubers who have faked trips before. Hanna says that while she has "nothing against" Coachella, she doesn't think an introvert like herself would be that into it. Plus, she wanted to prove just how easy it is to lie on social media.

Is it too soon to call this a turnaround? Maybe, but things are starting to look up for Snap.
The company just reported its results for the first quarter of 2019 and delivered investors some long overdue good news: Snapchat added new users for the first time in a year.
The app now counts 190 million daily active users (DAUs), up from 186 million last quarter. Overall, DAUs are still down from its previous peak of 191 million, but the new growth suggests the company has been able to reverse the momentum caused by an unpopular redesign last year.
